You are only two and a half years away from becoming an officer. The first two semesters are about acquiring knowledge in the School - we will teach you the most important things necessary in the work of a navigator and mechanic. After one year of theory, it's time to practice - the third and fourth semesters are swimming. Yes! Already in the second year of your studies at the Maritime School, you set off on your first cruise (for which you get paid monthly)! After returning from internships, you come back to us for one more semester of study.

Our staff currently consists of 130 experienced educators and practitioners. The lecturers can boast many years of professional experience, both in working on ships, in shipping companies and in the Maritime Administration. We employ the best enthusiasts in their field, who share their knowledge and experience in an interesting way, solidly preparing students for work at sea.

The teaching base of the Maritime School is constantly being expanded. We make sure that our students work on the most modern equipment that will professionally prepare them for later work at sea. That is why we have many different simulators, incl. navigation bridge, engine room, communications or electronic maps. We have some of them as the only ones in Poland and few in the world, so classes in our School can be safely called interesting!

To be able to start swimming and receive an officer's diploma, it is necessary to have specialized training, i.e. passing individual courses. All courses are included in the curriculum at the Maritime School and you do not have to pay additional fees for this - they are included in the total amount of tuition for the entire period of study.

It is no secret that the seafaring profession is one of the most highly paid professions. Working at sea is demanding, but also financially rewarding. Especially for a young man who is just entering adulthood. The monthly salary is much higher than what would be possible for the first job on land. On average it is around 2,500 EUR.
